The Hope Road Salon

  • Waterstones Piccadilly Piccadilly London, England United Kingdom (map)

JoinVamba Sherif, Mohini Kent, Jeremy Cameron and Pete Kalu. Reading and panel discussion chaired by Sunny Singh. You can buy your tickets here.

Waterstones are thrilled to present The Hope Road Salon: an evening of brilliant discussion and readings with a host of authors.

We will be celebrating the launch of Vamba Sherif’s new book “Land of My Fathers” which connects the world of America, the freed slaves, Liberian past with the recent civil war with the world of Western Africa.

Mohini Kent’s book “Black Taj” was published to great acclaim earlier this year. Set against a background of monsoons and heat waves, shanty towns and expensive bungalows, this is a tale of the cruelties that took place during the 1947 partition of India.

Jeremy Cameron, author of a series of fast-paced novels featuring Nicky Burkett, brings the fourth book to us this evening: "Hell on Hoe Street", full of action and dead-pan humour, it’s a multicultural tale of loyalty and revenge when the peace of Walthamstow is shattered as Nicky learns his friend Kamran has disappeared under suspicious circumstances in Pakistan.

And for all those YA Zombie lovers, we celebrate Pete Kalu “Zombie XI” – a story of not just zombies, but also friendship, family, and the at times fraught world of teen relationships – oh, and football.
